FOR THE 8TH ANNUAL
ITALIAN LIGHTS FESTIVAL
The Italian Lights Festival returns this August 18-21, four days highlighting the food, wine, music & traditions of Italy with a nod to Music City hospitality. In 2017, our festival culminates in the spectacular finale of the Great American Eclipse, which passes over Nashville on Monday, August 21st.
Join us as we celebrate the Sights and Sounds of Italy… with a Grand Finale that happens only once every 500 years: a Total Solar Eclipse in Nashville.
4 DAYS OF RECORD-BREAKING CROWDS!
OVER 1 MILLION TOURISTS are expected to flood Nashville for the Eclipse event, and Italian Lights will be the biggest free event in the city! The festival has been extended to 4 days to accommodate the Solar Eclipse events and crowds. As an official NASA Viewing Location for the Eclipse, the crowds this year will be record-breaking.
Vendors, please plan accordingly in terms of inventory and staff – this will be a huge event!
